9th Annual ZG Thanksgiving // November 26 // 6pm
« on: November 07, 2016, 10:19:33 AM »
  • WHAT:
    These have always been a blast to go to, and an excellent way to meet a bunch of fellow ZG fam!  We hang out for dinner, party together, and then you can crash at our house.  We'll keep busy with foosball, Pool, Wii, beer pong, tippy cup, card games, bonfire etc...

    We live a ways out, so you'll thank us when you don't have to drive home.  We have a few bedrooms for couples and two living rooms with couches & floor space for blow up mattresses.  It's one of the dumbest weekends to try and drive after drinking.

    Have everything cooked before you get there, and we'll have outlets for crockpots.  We'll line up and start into the food at 6pm!

    Also, this will be PJ themed, so feel free to throw on those footy pajamas you have been dying to wear in public!

    WHEN:
    Saturday, November 26th 2016
              5:00pm - Social Hour & Prep
              6:00pm - Dinner time!

  • I have to mention, you will not need to bring enough of any dish to share with eeeveryone! There's always a ton of food left over.  (except bacon wrapped weenies :) )
    But I don't want greeting cards. I want to get fucked up on trampolines
    Pretty much everything that DVS_DAN said is correct.

    Im not kidding our normal group would have mentally devastated this girl. Im talking years of therapy to even be able to tie her shoes again. She was nice enough girl but she was in over her head.

    Oh & chips for the dip of course.  I can bring a power strip or two also if you could use them for all the crock pots that could potentially be in use.  I know my dip will be in one.

  • I got scheduled at work until 6 p.m. that day. It's a new job otherwise I would have asked for the day off. If it's slow I may be able to be there earlier but I'll still bring the cheese dip if people think it will be eaten.  Would be more for later in the night snacking I guess.

  • Well was able to make a swap & the boss said he could try to get me out of there by 4pm so I may actually make it on time for dinner.

  • Where dem pichers?
    Good call.  I was going to start throwing a few on the forum from the party, but Alzheimers got to me.  Overall, it turned out to be a pretty good party.  We had a handful of new people that hopefully got to meet everyone and get introduced.  There was limited drama during the whole evening.  I had name tags from Halloween that I wished I could have found for the party, but failed.

    There was plenty of food to fill up on.  The Burnurkey made for a memorable event.  Bear used the "wind lid" for his infrared convection cooker thingamajigger, which cooked the outside too much.  The meat temp button never popped, so it was all a mystery.  Jason's mac & cheese, lobster, and bacon pie provided some odd tasting burps afterwards.  The snacks survived the whole night since people ended a little earlier than usual.  Tumbler's nacho cheese dip is probably the favorite of mine, before heartburn kicks in.  Plenty of pie was around if you failed to fill up.

    We burned a couch at the bonfire as a traditional sacrifice.  Mike4King ended up taking over the beer pong table again. I owned the foosball action and retired after two wins, LOL. Squirt tried to liven things up with rounds of shots, but couldn't ever get enough takers and had to finish more and more each time, haa. I think I went to bed at 3:30, after a group of us played Cards Against Humanity late into the night.

    I want to say thanks to all that came, especially the new peeps!  It's a long boring drive, and it ended up working out well at our house.  We'll fire up a Winter bash once we get ice out on the river!
